Description

Class Experience

This is a one-time class similar in structure to my Journey Around the World Social Studies Class. This class focuses specifically on Mexico and Mexican history, culture, and geography.

Students will develop a good understanding of global geography, historic trade routes, political ties and colonization.

Students will learn key:
1. People
2. Places
3. Things
in Mexican history and culture. 

This is a true social studies course in how it is interdisciplinary. We cover geography, history, culture, religion, political structures, natural wonders and wildlife, foods. What would you want to do if you went to Rio de Janeiro or Tokyo or the Gobi Desert? These will be the things we talk about as we go to those places. Over time, the kids will be exposed to lots of different cultures, religions, political structures. They'll have a sense for where these places are in the world. They'll learn tips and clues for finding different places on a map.  In this class, we will focus on Mexico and Mexican history, geography, and culture.

Additionally, a goal with this class is to inspire a love for different places and cultures around the world and to encourage a curiosity to explore and learn about the world.
We live in a big and fascinating world and one of my goals with my classes is to help kids develop an interest and appreciation for the world around them and different cultures. My classes draw from my own experiences as a world traveler. I've visited and lived abroad in seventeen countries -- and I have visited Mexico several times. Much of what we do in my classes is the same type of research I would do on a destination before I would travel to that country. I'm also the former deputy director of the historic home of President Ronald Reagan and in 2010 was a candidate for United States Congress.
There is no homework required. However, I do provide worksheets that students can use to fill in during class. These are great for work samples for students who have required work samples for charter schools. I also provide additional notes after class for students to go deeper on their own.
I provide a worksheet before class that students can fill in as we go along. I also provide additional notes after class with more information and links to related articles and videos.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Parents looking for materials to submit as work assignments are always happy with the materials I provide.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parents, please note this class is designed for kids ages 10-14. I have a separate section of this class for younger students, ages 6-9. If you have a younger student, you are free to enroll them in either class. Just be aware that this section is designed for kids ages 10-14.
